  • The community is invited to visit Grotto Pizza in Seaford this holiday season to view the parade of trees that decorate the restaurant in support of local charities.
    One of the many trees that will be featured is the "Children's Tree," decorated by the students of St. John's Pre-school. All proceeds from the collection box placed under the pre-school tree will support "The Pegeen and Samantha Brown Pediatric fund," at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital.
    The fund was established in memory of two ladies in the community who were passionate about children: Samantha Brown, 17, who was killed in a car crash in January 2007, and Pegeen Brown, who passed away suddenly just one month following. Samantha was an active volunteer at Nanticoke and Pegeen was a kindergarten teacher at Woodbridge Elementary.
